Everyday Eats: Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Today I tried to make a new thing… mashed radishes.  I’ve heard that it’s possible.  I was having the worst craving for roast beef and mashed potatoes, so I busted out some radishes to try to whip up some fauxtatoes.

Much like my experiments in mashed cauliflower, it did not work.

However, the taste was much better (cauliflower = ass).  The texture was just off.  I think I may try oven-roasting some radishes instead, bacon-roasted veggies style.  I bet that would be good!

Oh, and today was a lifting day.  Usually we go MWF but this week we’re doing TTh and maybe Saturday.  So after lifting fasted, I was ravenous.  This feeling of emptiness followed me throughout the day.

Spoiler alert: I did not eat fewer calories today!

Breakfast

10-23-14-bfast

Two farm eggs scrambled in 1/2tbsp of butter, 1/2 slice of cheddar, and 5oz of smoked ham leftover from the funeral and visitation.

Dinner

10-23-14-dinner

Slow-cooked beef roast and brown gravy (reduced the juices in a skillet and thickened with heavy cream), baby carrots, and buttery broccoli.

Dessert

10-23-14-dessert

Whipped peanut butter.

Like I said, definitely did not stay below my calorie count today.  I’ve just felt ravenous.  I don’t know if it’s from the lifting, or from detoxing from carbs, or what.  I tried to stay a little lower on the carb count today, but I let myself eat more.  This also isn’t counting the gravy, which I didn’t really know how to calculate because it was leftover juices and some heavy cream.  I didn’t use too much – maybe two tablespoons?  It probably wasn’t too much, maybe around 100-200 calories.

At any rate, I hit my protein goal, which is a must on lifting days.  I also stayed below my carb count, so I’m happy.  Hopefully things will even out a bit more tomorrow!
